Amber got me a rock tumbler for my birthday. So far it’s been a lot of fun!

We picked up a bunch of rocks along the beach near us to use for the first batch. I’m glad we did it when we did because it has been either too hot or too rainy to walk along the beach since then it feels.

The process is pretty straight forward. Each week you clean off all the rocks, add the appropriate grit level and some water and put the barrel back on the tumbler. It’s a lot of fun seeing the rocks change a little each week.

I definitely want to do some research on ways to improve the results but I am very happy with how the rocks turned out. Now I just need to figure out what to do with them!
